How to Crochet the Net Filet Stitch

January 5, 2018

Today I wanted to share with you a quick photo tutorial of the Crochet Net Filet Stitch. It’s a very easy stitch with a simple 1 row repeat. This is the stitch I used for the Urban Chic Cocoon Sweater. It’s a great stitch for summer and spring patterns because of the open and airy design. I’d love to make a swim suit cover or a summer cowl with this stitch!

Pattern Notes & Stitches to Know
ch – chain
dc – double crochet

ch 4 at the beginning of each row counts as dc + ch 1


Ch any odd number (for this swatch I chained 25)

Row 1: dc in 5th ch from the hook (counts as dc + ch 1), *ch 1, skip one stitch, dc in next* repeat from * to * across

Row 2: ch 4 (counts as dc + ch 1), turn, dc in first ch 1 space *ch 1, dc in next ch 1 space* repeat from * to * across, dc in ch 4 space from previous round

  1. Hi, I’m ready to start your urban chic cocoon. I am 4 feet 10 inches
    Will I need to make this shorter. I want it to be just below My butt? Would love your input. I love this pattern

  2. Thanks for taking the time to reply. I need to get my yarn. Do you think cotton yarn would be a good choice, like hobby lobby I love this cotton

    1. Yes, it would work! It might make the gauge larger because that’s a category 4 yarn and I used a category 3 🙂

      1. Hi! This is just a stitch tutorial, not a full pattern 🙂 For the urban Chic Cocoon Sweater you could add 10 to the starting ch
